What a beautiful memorial to all the Virginians who have served. The architecture and interior of this facility is stunning. The outdoor memorial wall is gorgeous. And the temporary exhibit of Virginians who have lost their lives in service since 911 was a beautiful tribute,...More

This is an excellent memorial , with attached museum, to those who gave their all in war. We were very fortunate in that an honoured air hero, who's story was on display, was present and we were able to talk to him, in his 90s...More

Not a must see, BUT a brief insight to every war the United States fought in. Free parking and admission.

I wouldn't make this a must see but if you have a little extra time it is worth taking the time to see.

The area is lovely and the Memorial by the river is beautiful and moving. Names are engraved and the pool and flame with the grieving mother statue is profound. Th e kids can just run around the grounds too.

There is a nice auditorium where you can choose to watch short videos of each conflict. They are well done with veteran interviews.

The war memorial is small, but very well laid out. It has the names of all the Virginians that have fought in all the wars over time. It should take about 15-20 minutes to go through it unless one wants to read the names inscribed.
